Show & Tell: When I Was 17



Another Show & Tell link up with From Mrs to Mama:  WHEN I WAS 17


1. When you were 17, tell us what kind of car you drove, where you worked, and what you were usually up to on the weekends?
I drove a 1993 Chevy Corsica (yeah, pretty sure they don't make those anymore), worked at Maurice's at the Southern Hills Mall in Sioux City and on the weekends I drove "mains" with my friends and parked at the Mike's Foodtown parking lot with all the other high schoolers.

2. Show us a picture of you when you were 17 {roughly}.

Don't you just love senior pictures....and tight perms??

3. When you were 17, tell us what you wanted to be when you "grew up."
I wanted to be successful, rich, married, have children, be happy. I really didn't know what I wanted to do with my life at this point...it took a couple years of college to figure that out.
 
4. When you were 17, tell us the kind of boys that you dated. Did you have a type? Do you have a relationship you remember well? Tell us about it.
Do we have two hours....girlfriend loved having a guy in her life and never went long without one. I liked athletic, good looking, funny guys. This doesn't mean I always had all three qualities at the same time! I dated another Nick who opened my eyes to Pearl Jam and thus love them to this day....that counts as a memory.
 
5. When you were 17, tell us where you pictured your life 10 years from then. Did it turn out the way you expected it to?
I would say my life turned out pretty much the way I envisioned, except at 27 I hadn't yet gotten married (though we were engaged & living with each other by this point) and, of course, hadn't had our baby yet. However, I had found a job I loved and didn't mind busting my butt to continue moving up the ladder.
 
 
Wow....this post really brought me back...and makes me happy to be at this point in my life!
